You may have already seen this, but I just saw the clip. I am truly appalled! I've never seen the show, so I don't know how they find the people on the show, but from Buddy's reaction, I don't think it was acting.

I'm interested to hear your thoughts as to what would happen to the cake contract? Would the decorator be legally responsible for providing a new cake? In my mind, the bridezilla should pay for the cake she destroyed, and I don't think I'd want to make her a new one. I'm not a business owner so I'm not sure what should happen in order to be fair to the decorator and also to keep within contract. Any thoughts?

I did not see that episode but if I were Buddy I would have taken the lilies off and then just ice the cakes with the colors she already had squirted icing over and then put the lilies back on. If the wedding was the next day then it should have already been paid for. If it had been me...she would have gotten that cake just like she had done it...

There was another thread on this some time ago, as this episode is from last season.

Apparently, the bride went on another site and said that she was told to be a bridezilla by the producers, to enhance the show. She would have had to sign a contract/release for her and her mother to appear on the show, so why would she intentionally be a be-atch for all the world to see?

I heard that somebody had read on the bridezilla's facebook page that TLC told her to act like that.

LOL...just read my sentence and it makes no sense, but basically I heard before that it was staged.

Oops! Sorry, I don't have cable and hadn't seen this show when it aired. I just saw the clip. I also didn't know there was an entire discussion about it on CC before. Here's the link to the old discussion:

This will be fun to read! icon_smile.gif Thanks for your replies, everyone. I like the idea of smoothing out the frosting the bridezilla added and delivering it just like that. Hey, she said she wanted color and supposedly knows more about art than the decorator. icon_rolleyes.gif

I do believe it was staged but if a bride did that to me...that would be the cake she received!

I wouldn't have made her another cake like someone else said I would have taken off the flowers and smeared the colors she put on it make it look tye dyed. She obviously liked those colors she chose them. I would ask her if she has been off her meds or what Oh yea don't tell anyone I made this thing for you Have a nice day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I too think it looked very stage - very convenient timing with him walking out like that. I wonder whether the cake may have been a dummy cake? I can imagine he still would have been rather annoyed to see that she'd destroyed those flowers etc. I think that she was told to behave like that by producers and my guess is that they footed some of the bill for the wedding. It would hardly be entertaining if they didn't have a Bridezilla and they would totally think it was worth it for the amount of buzz they generated from it.

I would never do something but I imagine a lot of people wouldn't have that big an issue being a Bridezilla for a tv show if it meant they paid for part of the wedding and the girl would know/assume that those closest to her understood that it was all in the name of the show and isn't overly reflective of who she actually is.

Having said all that, I think it would have made for a much more interesting show if he turned up with the cake she decorated! But like she said, she got the actual cake she originally ordered so it must have been a fake cake ... or a cake for another client icon_sad.gif

Here's another thread on that

It looks like icingrose may be an employee or something. Evidentally the cake is real, the producers did ask the bride to fit a storyline but noone expected her to destroy the cake with icing and they were all very annoyed. It seems that the cake was real and he genuinely made a second one for the wedding - even though the staff wanted him to take the one she messed up.

I did see the show....Carlos called the mother of the bride...she was very upset and agreed to pay for a second cake....

I don't know about your area but where I am from customers ARE NOT allowed in the kitchen EVER! It is against health dept. rules. I thought it very odd and very staged that she would even be allowed to come into the kitchen. Since the cake was finished it should have been brought to her to view not the other way around. Which tells me it was even more staged to keep the "action" away from the customer base that was there in the bakery, AND to conveniently be next to a rack full of colorful piping bags.

She would've looked like a toothless racoon at her wedding. Yep, I would've taken her out. LOL

Not to be picky, but it's Buddy, not Carlo. It's Carlo's Bakery, which is the name that it was when Buddy's parents bought it 25-30 years ago. I think it's the name of the very first owner, some 50+ years ago.

I would have given her the cake she ruined.

I am glad I do not own a TV at home. I would end up watching these shows.

I am deaf and sometimes just watching facial expressions and body language I can figure out what the person is like

I would give her the cake she messed up and let her have the wedding cake.

Buddy is a talented cake artist. There is so much work and hours put into any sugarpaste flowers.

I cringed when I saw her mess up the cake.
